Synopsis:

These tales, many of which happened to the author�s own kin, reflect the uniquely cultivated history of the Ozarks� land and people.

From the Back Cover:

The real challenge of the Ozarks, the remote hill country of Arkansas and Missouri, is how to get a living out of the land. It can be done, but there are times when the only dependable backhills crop seems to be the storytelling.

An Ozarks story grows from the land and is never pure fiction; but never in all tarnation has one been pure fact, either. Even so, this book tells the tales of real people, many of them the author's kin--their philosophic bent and extraordinary vocabulary, neither of which has its roots in erudition, and how they combine individuality, irreverence, and human warmth into a reasonable way of life that hardly seems possible in this day and age.

Charles Morrow Wilson, with his taletelling talent, provides us with a bushelful of humorously woven and homespun stories. We are taken down a road, part past, part present, where a fancy car would lose its axle within the hour, but where the age of anxiety hasn't made much headway either, to find a slice of American life not duplicable anywhere.
